Hijack is a mission type in Heat Signature.
Goals[edit | edit source]
The primary goal of a hijacking mission is to fully take out the crew of a ship (whether lethally or not) and to pilot the ship back to a friendly station. This can be a very challenging mission depending on the guard kit that a specific ship has.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
- Come well-stocked for these missions, as you will have to deal with every single member of the crew. A weapon with a high ammo count or a melee weapon will come in handy.
- Once you have control of the ship, you can simply force it to pilot itself by pressing F.
- If a mission happens to take place in a Warzone, you will have to act fast to complete it, else you might find that there's no ship left to hijack by the end of your efforts.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Occasionally a Hijack mission will come with a "liberate clause." Completing a mission with such a clause will result in a hostile station becoming friendly. This also means the player must get out of the ship before it reaches the station, or else the player will die.
